This is our bourbon barrel-aged Hugene (imperial porter), and it tastes exactly like it sounds. This is a very complex beer with an initial caramel flavor and sweetness upfront that slowly melts away right before the tidal wave of chocolate malt character crashes over you. A smooth silky mouthfeel from the residual malt sugars yields remarkably drinkable ale.

What a great beer. Had it as a horizontal with weegene, eugene, and hugene. I was blown away from the start with this one. Wow.

A- black as the pits of hell with a chocolate head.
S- great, really. Whisky hints with plenty of standard porter notes. There's a feel of creme brulle there (but not in the Southern Tier way).
T- so good. Lots of caramel. Not hot for an imperial.
M- smooth and easy. Not for everyday, but then neither is my ex-wife. It's a bit sharp, but mellow enough for the strong-willed.

I was pleasently surprised by this one. Must try if you can. Of course, our cute bartender, Sam, helps. She might make Bud Light worthwhile...
